What is Plein air?

The term ‘en plein air’ originates from the French language, meaning ‘in the open air’. Traditionally it was used to describe techniques of outdoor painting. In particular, plein air painting strongly connects with the impressionism of the mid 19th century. Especially for the WILDArt event, the European Wilderness Society invited artists of different domains to a Wilderness art adventure. For this event, we are welcoming artists from five different countries and numerous artistic specialisations. Svitlana Kyrlyk is an experienced plein air painter from Ukraine. With her eye for details and use of natural colours, Svitlana Kyrlyk will try to capture the beauty of the Ukrainian Wilderness in her paintings.

Since 2017, she is a member of the Ukrainian Union of Artists, and she has organised several Plein Air events in the Transcarpathian region.  In one of her recent projects, she developes an ‘Art residence’ in the village Smerekova. The European Wilderness Society visited this Art residence recently. Svitlana Kyrlyk already participated in other Art Events of the Project “Areas of Inspiration” in Slovakia and Czech Republic, and soon she will enjoy the WILDArt Plein Air in Ukraine.
